Doctor Mike

Måned siden

Last summer I reacted to some bizarre health posts I’d found on Facebook. I logged back in to see if I could fact-check any more posts that seemed to be spreading like wildfire. Well wouldn’t you know it didn’t take me long to find some dangerously misleading or downright ridiculous health “tips”. I had to fact check things like using onions to cure the cold, baking soda to remove grease from your hair, drinking cow’s urine to fight COVID-19, putting cabbage in your bra to battle mastitis, using toothpaste as a skin cream, and the proper way to hold your phone, drive, and wear your backpack to school.
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

As someone who takes an antidepressant (thankfully one that doesnt interact poorly with grapefruit), its infuriating to see people sharing "ignore your doctor, eat grapefruit while on your medication." Like, thats DESTRUCTIVELY irresponsible.

The alcohol for stinky feet (or pits) remedy is actually good. If I am going straight from work to somewhere, and I don’t have the luxury of taking a shower between, I will take a little isopropyl alcohol and wipe my pits before reapplying deodorant. Same for the baking soda on greasy hair. With long hair, washing and drying it is a long process and if I don’t have an extra hour, I’ll do what I need to make it not look like soggy fast food fries. Which is usually the same scenario, washes that morning but by the evening it’s greasy. They’re not cures for anything, just hacks to appear less gross in a pinch.

Onions might not heal you, but if you rub garlic on your feet your body can absorb the chemicals and in about 15 minutes you can taste the garlic.

The way you look hair, facial hair length fits you perfectly!! The drinking cow urine I was rolling. But the baking soda you put on after you shampoo your hair at the scalp then rinse. Not just by itself. You're not supposed to do it all the time it dries your hair out.

Its funny because many lactation consultants recomend cabbage because..yes the shape and coverage and cold does help when having lactation issues. After I had my baby I had so many issues...never did use the cabbage but used a cold wet rag....issues ..water and moistures from the rag make a mess and since my breats were so inflamed the cold didnt last long. And I wasnt really able to get the shap of the rag in the right place. I can see how cabbage would help. Reducing swelling jn the breasts can help with flow. Yeah had a rather painful almost year with these issues

I think the cabbage on the boob thing is based off a trick for mom with new babies. Not long after my sister had her second baby, they found out her milk didn’t have enough nutrients, so they had to switch to formula so the baby wouldn’t be malnourished. Her doctor said that putting cold cabbage leaves in her bra helps ease some of the soreness from her breast being swollen. It DOES NOT, however, cure any infection. I think the only reason he specified cabbage was because it can fit the shape of the breast better than a cold pack

That Colgate tip must be a mean-spirited prank. When I was a kid, my older brother would bully me by rubbing toothpaste on my face. It really stings the eyes to the point that you can't fully open them for 15 minutes and hurts the more tender areas of skin (i.e. most of your face).

The cabbage one is true and it is fully practiced in Poland by people with breasts and recommended by doctors and nurses 😁😁😁 when my sister-in-law had infection in Brest (milk clogged) I called doctor and this is what they recommend, and it worked very well. The only thing is that it was not a frozen cabbage but normal temperature cabbage 😁

I mean I think there are some grains of truth in the first post, holding in a fart can be uncomfortable but unless you have a blockage you wouldn’t get immense pressure. The second bullet has some truth in it to, as in your colon the gut bacteria there will further break down the waste possibly making gas products containing sulfur and hydrogen which some the hydrogen could then be re-absorbed into your blood and released as you exhale.

The baking soda for greasy hair thing is just another version of dry shampoo. No idea if baking soda even works for that, but corn starch actually does. I've tried that after my hairdresser recommended it instead of canned dry shampoo. Basically either of those are just if you don't have time to actually shower. Or, alternatively, if you're depressed or have some other reason why you can't get yourself to shower.

Cabbage leaves actually help with the pain and inflammation of mastitis. My mother is a nurse in parent-infant health, and says that as baffling as it is, cabbage leaves are actually marginally effective. Probably not for flushing out infection, but they are relieving.
